Reunion Time

If you can find Henry H. Fellows, and his wife, Belle Lamunion on your family tree, you are invited to the reunion of their descendants. I once wrote about some treasures in Belles box. Historically, Belles family “got together”, but sometime later the reunion of what was then the Fellows family, was called a Fenton reunion. Two of Henry and Belles children married siblings named Fenton. Henry was born 3 August 1…

Reflections and a Resolution Update

This entry is part 253 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

This entry is part 253 of 342 in the series Belles Box Today marks the last post in Belles box, archival book two. Two down, one to go! The third book had fewer transcriptions and more photos. I don’t know the names of each person in the photos, but I will continue to post each item. The entire series will end before the annual reunion of Belles family, which is scheduled for August 2, 2009. While this is a little late, I wa…

We hope to have a record turn-out at the home of Jane Warren on August 2, 2009.

Jane also has great memories of past reunions, and the more recent ones which h…

Fellows Family Land Records, Wexford County, Michigan Liber 87 page 383

This entry is part 61 of 99 in the series Deeds in the Family

…deed was recorded the same day Charlie and Belle married, apparently in a judge’s chambers at the courthouse. A closer look shows that Lester and Sarah Stone were the witnesses. Oh. Although Charlie Tinker’s obituary gave an earlier year for their marriage, I am convinced that the actual date was 15 July 1914. One little postcard shows how valuable various fragments of evidence can become. In the collection from Belles box, I w…

Belle Fellows and Family

These photos were posted on my old site, and I am adding them here. They are thumbnails, which you may enlarge. Belle (Lamunion) and Charlie Tinker. Belle and Charlie married in 1914. Her grandchildren say, “Grandma and Charlie”. I’ll have to ask M-in-L the dog’s name. I forgot it. Belle, and all her grandchildren who lived nearby at the time. One uncle told us that Bill Burgess would not sit down unless Uncle Hi was in t…

Moving Right Along

…if I could stick to that, the pile would shrink dramatically. Between my two blogs, I have made the following posts: GrannyPam: 129 posts Granny’s Genealogy: 265 posts That is 394, more than one per day for a 365 day year. So, if averages count, I can take the rest of the year off! The funny think about this is that I thought I had accomplished much toward my resolutions by analyzing and posting all the “Belles Box” items

2009 Resolutions, Progress?

…tomorrow is written, I will have made 406 total posts on Granny’s Genealogy, and 180 on GrannyPam. That is a total of 586. To be completely honest, there were many days that I made no post anywhere, but on some days I posted several times. Honestly, if my goal was to post every day, I did not achieve it. If it was to write every day, I did achieve it. I am particularly happy about the “Belles Boxseries of posts. I want…

Genealogical Breakthrough

…able on the site. I have indexed some records in this project, and will continue to do so as I have time. Oh, yes, the side trip. I did a quick search and found out that some early Michigan, births, deaths and marriages are now posted in one of the new tools. I quickly downloaded images and entered citations to some records of the family of Henry H. Fellows, b. 1858; and his wife Belle Laumnion. I previously wrote about Belle and her amazing box
